CKC - challenge #1 phrase stickers

Counterfeit Kit Challenge

This post is my reveal for the Counterfeit Kit Challege this month. We were to use phrase stickers on out layouts. I know I have a few and don't always use them on pages and should really use them more. On today's layout I used them on a tag for my journaling, even cut a few to make the words needed for it.




I used this sketch from Stuck?! Sketches for a little more inspiration and will link this up to their challenge!
                              


I love the phrase stickers from Tim Holtz, made it easy to make a journal tag with what I wanted it to say.

I'm also loving the clear alpha, I bought them on sale probably about 2 years ago and have never used them! I'm really happy how the page turned out, it was even husband and kid approved! 


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

DCD- Foxy

Here is my first card for the Anything goes challenge over at the Die Cut Diva's challenge blog. This month our sponsor is Elizabeth Craft Designs.

ElizabethCraftDesigns.com  

 I have the Woodland Pals stamps and dies that I will be using this month. So you will see 3 cards with 1 set from me, kind of like a little mini series!  


I had a scarp piece of water color paper, previously colored, sitting on my desk. I thought it would be a perfect background and keep my card clean and simple. So I trimmed it down to the size I wanted and stamped my background. Then I adhered it to my card base. The adorable little fox was stamped and then die cut, before adhering him with foam tape. 


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Counterfeit Kit Challenge Guest spot

Counterfeit Kit Challenge

Happy Tuesday, I can't believe it's August already! Today I'm excited to be a part of the Counterfiet Kit Challenge blog hop today as the August Guest Design team member! This month our inspiration kit is the July 2017 Gossamer Blue kit.



The first thing that stood out to me in the kit were the colors! I think the colors give more of a masculine feel even with the floral patterns mixed in. So that is what I based my kit off of. This kit will work well with pictures of my boys! 



Here are some stamps I added to my kit. There are images I thought would work well with the kit and pictures I'm planning to use.


 I'm looking forward to using this kit and getting some more pictures in albums! Follow along with the links below to see what the other ladies have created for their kits this month.
